How To Make Bisquick Cheddar Biscuits
1. Prep work: Preheat the oven to 425°F (220ºC) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. Make the dough: In a large bowl, stir together the Bisquick baking mix, milk, and cheddar cheese until the ingredients combine and a soft dough forms.
3. Bake the biscuits: Drop the dough, about 2 tablespoon-sized mounds in size, onto the baking sheet. You’ll get about 8–10 biscuits. Bake for 10–12 minutes or until they're golden brown on top.
4. Make the garlic butter: While the biscuits are baking, stir together the melted butter and garlic powder in a bowl. As soon as the baked biscuits are done, brush the garlic butter sauce over the tops of the biscuits.
5. Serve: Make sure to serve the tender biscuits warm and pair them with anything you want. Enjoy!
Tips To Make The Best Recipe
- Only mix the dough until all of the ingredients combine for the best texture. Do not overmix the dough.
- Add a little more garlic powder if you want extra garlicky biscuits.
- Sprinkle cheese on top of the biscuits before baking for extra cheesy goodness.
- Brush the garlic butter mixture on the biscuits as soon as they come out of the oven for the best flavor.
- Mix Old Bay seasoning with garlic powder and melted butter for even more flavor.
- Serve the biscuits with butter to spread in the middle to make the biscuit inside even softer.
How To Store Bisquick Cheddar Bay Biscuits
At room temperature: Store any leftover biscuits in an airtight container at room temperature for 1-2 days.
In the fridge: Transfer the biscuits to the fridge, and they'll last for up to a week.
In the freezer: If you want to keep them for even longer, you can put the biscuits in a freezer-safe bag or airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months.
Reheating: For that fresh-out-of-the-oven flavor, microwave the biscuits for about 10 seconds or heat in the oven at 375°F for a few minutes. Brush some fresh butter mixture on top. If you're reheating the frozen biscuits, add some more reheating time or thaw them in the fridge overnight.
FAQS About This Bisquick Cheddar Bay Biscuits Recipe
Should you refrigerate cheddar biscuits?
You can keep cheddar biscuits at room temperature for a few days. After that, you should refrigerate them to keep them fresh.
What cheese is best for biscuits?
Cheddar cheese is best for biscuits since it will give them the most flavor. Sharp cheddar cheese especially works great and will give the biscuits the cheesiest flavor.
How do you keep Bisquick biscuits from crumbling?
Biscuits that are crumbly are usually caused by overmixing the dough. When you make the biscuit dough, you should only mix it enough until all of the ingredients are combined. Otherwise, you risk overmixing, which creates a dry, tough biscuit that crumbles easily.
